Iridium Extreme® PTT (Push-to-talk)

The Iridium Extreme® PTT (Push-to-talk) combines voice communication and positioning services with less than two-second push-to-talk capability—all in a portable, hand-held device. Netted Iridium allows multiple users to share a common voice or data connection—broadcasting to all users in a net or to sharing their connection for push-to-talk voice applications. Providing transmit and receive functionality for both voice and data, the ruggedized Netted Iridium handset contains an embedded GPS device allowing the device to send position location information automatically or at the touch of a button.

(NOTE: Minimum purchase of 2 units required for PTT radio functionality to work. CALL GIT FOR DETAILS before placing your order)
